Relations between Morocco and Algeria have taken a dangerous turn since Algeria militarized its border with Morocco.
The Algerian High Council of State, headed by President Abdelmadjid Tebboune, held an extraordinary meeting last Wednesday, where it accused Rabat of threatening Algeria’s stability and security in coordination with Israel.
The council accused the Moroccan authorities of causing the fires in the country with the help of the Kabyle Independence movement MAK, while announcing its intention to review relations with Morocco.
Algerian Foreign Minister, Ramtane Lamamra had also accused Morocco of coordinating with Israel to destabilize Algeria and denounced the statements of Israel’s foreign minister, who spoke about coordination between Algeria and Iran during his visit to Rabat.
An Algerian newspaper, Algerie Patriotique reported on Friday evening that Algeria is considering suspending the air link between Algiers and Casablanca to reconsider bilateral relations between the two countries.
The newspaper, owned by former Defense Minister Khaled Nizar, confirmed that the Algerian army has militarized the border with Morocco and declared an exceptional state of emergency.
Morocco has also intensified its military presence on the borders, and there is fear of the tension leading to military skirmishes.
Despite the measures announced by Algeria, including the review of relations, Rabat remained silent and did not respond to the statement of the Algerian High Council of State.
